    Looking for bag that is not tactical. It’s mostly for office carry for daily use items. Typical lunch, pens paper knife, maybe a multi tool, light. Usual stuff one might encounter throughout the day.

    With the bags I might use them for a day trip here and there. Handful of times a year.

    First Tactical Specialist Half-Day. Like that it’s compact and has office type organization. CCW compartment.

    Maxpedition Riftpoint or Riftcore. I mean it’s Maxpedition. What else is there to say.

    Let me know what you all think of these options. Also, open to options for bags of the same style and price range.

    I’d say those two bags look pretty Tactical to me! Why not a North Face daypack or something less conspicuous?

    That is a nice bag but there is no dedicated CCW pouch

    Have to wonder how you determine if they are Tactical or not?

    Both of those seem plenty Tactical to me.

    I agree they’re slightly tactical looking but not in the sense of having every square inch covered in molle. Hard to explain honestly.

    I’ve looked at the vertex bags. I like them but didn’t love them. There is dealer near me so I hands on experience with them. They’re still an option as well.

    I like my Evade 1.0 honestly if I want to go more "Grey" but still have features available too.

    I have a 1st Tactical Bag and love the hell out of it but it is certainly Tactical looking to me and then some!

    The Evade 1 bag looks really nice and I agree a lot less tactical looking. Thanks for the recommendation. I’ll check it out more.

    Same here. I've been carrying mine for 3 years now, mostly in an office setting.

    By definition _anything_ with a specific ccw mechanism is tactical. . .

    My Maxpedition bags are all gathering dust since I purchased the 5.11 DART PACK 30L (https://www.511tactical.com/dart24-pack.html). I use it for just about everything. It’s well organized , lightweight, and well constructed . The insert acts as a frame when loaded heavy. It’s CCW capable and it even has space for soft armor.

    Well, I ended up going with the Vertx Transit Sling 2.0 in khaki. Thank you for your input. I still may get another bag for day trips.

    I have the Transit 2.0 and the EDC Ready 2.0 and go back and forth depending on how much I have to carry. Love them both.

    Good to hear. The Ready Pack will probably be my next bag or possibly something a little larger.

    I need start getting more into bags since I find myself needing them. Just always find myself buying something else lol

    5.11 COVRT 18 bag is a great sleeper. Doesn't look tactical but matches the size (almost) of a Rush 24.

    I'm inching closer and closer to all out Vertx fan boy.

    My Ready is my truck bag. The Courier my work bag, and I'm rotating my new Transit in sienna into the rotation for longer outings. Great choice!
